ST. LOUIS -- Saint Louis defeated St. Bonaventure 3-0 on Sunday at Robert R. Hermann Stadium in the Atlantic 10 Conference opener for both squads.

With the win, the Billikens improve to 8-2 overall. St. Bonaventure dips to 1-6.

The Billikens got goals from three seniors -- Kingsley Bryce, Robert Kristo and Anthony Manning. The win improves SLU’s unbeaten streak at Hermann Stadium to 15.

“We played well,” SLU head coach Mike McGinty said. “We had a variety of guys contribute and get us some good looks. Anytime you can start conference play with a 3-0 win, you take it.” 

Bryce started the scoring in the 13th minute. After a buildup on the right side, he buried a Francisco Vizcaino cross into the back of the net for his second goal of the year.

Kristo scored his eighth goal of the season to make it 2-0 in the 25th minute. On a restart, David Graydon lofted a perfect ball that Kristo headed in. It was the fifth game in a row in which Kristo has scored.

The final Billikens’ tally came on a penalty kick in the 62nd minute after Bryce was fouled by SBU in the box. Manning converted the PK for his second goal of the season and the final 3-0 margin.

SLU fired a season-high 19 shots. Freshman keeper Sascha Otte made three saves for his sixth shutout of the season.
